(laughter). >> stephen: you know, st. patrick's day always makes me think of one of my favorite irish folksongs, danny boy. it's about a dying father saying good-bye to his son leaving home. you know, cuz-- please v a seat. because o danny boy, the pipe, the pipes are calling, from glen
summer's gone and all the roses dying. tis you, tis you must leave and i must bied that is truly the most upbeat section of the the entire song. that is the party in theu sa part of that song. because from there it gets really depressing. it goes, but come ye back and all the flowers are dying. and i am dead as dead i well may be. you come and find the place where i am lying and kneel and say an ave there for me. the father is telling his son, when you return home, i'm going to be dead. so please find my grave and pray because again, i'm going to be dead. but i don't understand why does the song have to be so sad. haven't the irish been through enough? the famine, wars, liam neeson's daughter repeatedly taken. so tonight in honor of st. patrick's day i have asked world renowned irish tenor karl
of danny boy. karl, please. (cheers and applause) karl skully, everybody. karl, thank you for being here. now and now ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen, danny boy with a happy ending. o danny boy the pipes the pipes are calling from glen to glen and down the mountainside the summer's gone and all the roses falling
human. and now it's time for the late show with stephen colbert! (cheers and applause). >> stephen: thank you very much. unbelievable. thank you so much. please, thanks so much. oh my gosh, how beautiful was that song? was that not-- it can be a happy ending, can't it? >> i really had chills. >> stephen: yeah. at the end, you don't see that coming. he names the new baby boy danny. i got a little-- i got a little teary at the end there, when
>> but i realize that guy could read a chili's menu and sing it and i would cry. >> stephen: absolutely. >> the song was beautiful. >> stephen: obviously the lyrics, a lot of it was in the lyrics. >> yeah. >> stephen: so beautiful. the irish, man, are you irish? >> i'm a quarter irish, yeah. >> stephen: which quarter? >> like the part that gave me acne for a long time. >> stephen: i'm 100% irish. well, you guys, how about the election, huh? it keeps getting weirder. looks like the gop is headed toward a brokered convention where the party bosses pick somebody other than trump or cruz. but who could it be? (cheers and applause) yeah, yeah, i know.
jeb bush's name has been mentioned. followed by loud sobbing and the words leave me alone coming from the vicinity of florida. and you have to find a good compromise candidate. and there is an experienced party elder that everyone respects. it's john boehner. who thinks we should make paul ryan do it. (laughter) in fact, yesterday boehner said we don't have a nominee who can win a first ballot. i'm for none of the above. i'm for paul ryan to be our nominee. oh john boehner. paul ryan already got out of one sticky situation by agreeing to succeed you as speak are of the house when no one else wanted the job. paul ryan is your go to flunky for everything. >> sorry to cancel on your dinner party, you know who is great at eating food, paul ryan. hey, listen, buddy, hey, listen, buddy, look. look, buddy, i know i promised to help you move that water bed
it turns out i don't want to. you know, paul ryan will do it. but here's the deal, paul ryan doesn't want to be the candidate because he, quote, believes the nominee should be someone who ran this year. okay. so that narrows it down to these people. but you can't-- you cannot blame speaker ryan for being hesitant. running for president is a gauntlet of personal attacks and media hit jobs. i mean it's bloody business. it's like the hunger games. no, it's worse. it is-- the hunger for power games. welcome! ha ha. welcome to the hungry for power
tributes, assemble. oh so few remain. they're like the beatles but there are six of them and they are all ringo. excuse me. i'm a bit under the weather. i'm so under the weather i can't say weather. andro, (laughter) don't be afraid. don't be afraid. friends, this is my tongueless man boy andro. good evening, and ro. snuff box. yes, oh, yes, here we go. nothing gets my blood pumping like the crushed dreams of failed candidates. oh, let's have a gram of lindsay graham. whooo! the south shall rise again! massachippisippi. hmmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm. hmmmm.
here we go. (laughter) my snuff box say little fuller today. because on tuesday we lost another brave tribute. >> after getting crushinged in his home state marco rubio suspended his campaign. >> after tonight it is clear that while we are on the right side, this year we will not be on the winning side z. >> stephen: yes, florida senator and boy whose birthday party your parents made you attend marco rub why has joined the ranks of the fallen. and when he dropped out, he was gracious in defeat. >> i'm so grateful for all the help that you guys have given us. i just want to you know there is nothing more could you have done. >> stephen: well, you could have voted for him. but besides that, no. (cheers and applause). >> stephen: and tribute marco leaves us after a string of triumphant third place victories. but was blind sided by tuesday's shocking secretary place defeat
so for the record, florida votes yes on jimmy buffett. yes on releasing pythons into thanks. loyal citizens, this is a major turning point in our game. for rubio is the last tribute fighting on behalf of the establishment of capital stivment he was supposed to liked. instead he became the jeb bush. ha, ha, ha. please clap, please clap. and now, with tribute trump marching toward capital city, i would just like to say everything's going to be fine. we game makers are still in full control of the games. andro, prime the escape pod to the forbidden zone. but first, let us pause to remember rubio's shining moment of oratory.
he's going to make america orange. he doesn't sweat because his bother pos are clogged from the spray tan. he likes to sue people, he should sue whoever did that to his face. have you seen his hands, and you know what they say about men with small hands. >> stephen: they win florida? (applause) and now let us bid fairwell-- fair well to the fallen.

(cheers and applause). >> stephen: and now in shameless. a lot of people who might be described as losers. >> yeah. >> stephen: but do you see them as losers? >> no, i mean when i watch the film, yes. i think when i act them, i try not to do that. >> stephen: i guess nobody really thinks of themselves as a loser. >> no. >> stephen: they are just somebody who hasn't won yet. >> yeah.
developed over the years, how to make someone who is either a loser or some what dispictable still compelling in some way. it's a good trick am you can have two homes if you can pull it off well. >> stephen: yes. speaking of which, speaking of which, you have pulled it off well enough that you actually have given your wife like the ultimate gift. you are a restoring her childhood home. >> yes. >> stephen: you bought the property and are you restoring the house she grew up in. >> that was good boyfriend behavior. i got to tell you. >> stephen: that is. that is one way to make the marriage work. >> that's-- that worked out very well for me. >> stephen: and where is the house. >> it is in aspen, colorado. >> stephen: okay, i understand. >> somebody has to grow up there. it is just for you, honey. i will buy a house in aspen. look, a mountain. >> stephen: is it literally the house she grew up in? >> st. and we are rebuilding it now and going through all of that stuff. thing. you have to make a lot of decisions.
scratch, but build the same house back again. >> stephen: so the house was going. >> yeah, it wasn't worth trying to save. but it does come down to a thousand decisions am i do love to build houses. i'm a bit of a carpenter. >> stephen: i noticed. you are a bit of a cover boy. this is, i saw you on the cover of wood turning basics. (laughter) (cheers and applause) >> i'm proud of that. >> stephen: i would be too. >> yeah. >> stephen: i would be too. i like this down here. it says william h. macy hooked on turning. what does that mean? >> i smoke a lot of dope. >> stephen: okay, all right. and you're making a bowl to hold this pipe. >> i made that bowl. that is a bowl right there. >> stephen: to hold your pot right there or something. >> yeah, why not. >> stephen: what can you turn? can you turn bowls. you mean like a lathe. >> i got a big powermattic lathe. you can turn bowls or you can
colume there. >> stephen: uh-huh. >> on a big lathe. spinedels, baseball bats. >> stephen: yeah. really exciting as a boy i wanted a lathe because it is really exciting to grind your way through a log or something like that. >> it's pretty fun. >> stephen: you also ride motorcycles, sort of manly. >> i did this motser cycle movie called wild hogs and i have been hooked on them ever since. >> stephen: but now you're going to season six of "shameless." >> yeah. your character frank gal a letter kind of rep robait drunk dad, makes a lot of wrong moral choices. >> yeah. >> stephen: are they wrong moral choices or his moral choices. >> oh, nobody's perfect. on the other hand, i think he's funny. i think he's hardworking. he's entrepreneurial. he represents what is best about the welfare system.

so yeah, we held on to it and just decided to do it for a supersmall budget. perfect inspiration. >> he was. because he held on to rocky. so we kept on saying we're going stallone it. and i saw him at a party recently and i am normally the type that will hide in the corner very awkwardly and i decided i am going to go and was. so i circled him for awhile. champion. >> yeah. >> you just smell it from a distance. >> right. >> and i was taken by, he has this beautiful neck that looks like the base of a sequ oia tree. >> stephen: he sat here a couple of weeks ago. >> it is incredible. so once i was over my neck gazing, i went up to him and i told him how he held on to the movie for myself, because of him an his inspiration. and he was like hey, hey, it's a good thing you did that.
